As firms seek to grow in new geographies and gain access to new customers, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals are becoming increasingly global and involving international parties.

To learn more about the opportunities and challenges of cross-border M&A in Austria and Switzerland, we spoke with Moritz Maurer, a partner at Niederer Kraft Frey, and Rainer Kaspar, a partner at PHH Rechtsanwalte.

During our insightful discussion, Moritz and Rainer, who both specialize in corporate and M&A work, provided insight into their respective markets. They also talked about the impact of working with international parties from a legal perspective.

We discussed a range of topics: FDI regulations, universities as the breeding grounds for start-ups, cultural differences when working with foreign investors and how technology has made M&A dealmaking possible since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.

Watch our 24-minute conversation below to learn about Moritz and Rainer’s views on the topics mentioned above.
